Diablo III Hotfixes and More

The Diablo III Website outlines some new hotfixes applied to Diablo III. These once again carry a warning that these note may contain spoilers for anyone who has not completed the action/RPG, but this is a generic warning that doesn't really apply in this case. Gold drops form ash post and vases have been nerfed, leading to complaints that this prevents players from being able to farm them as before for the gold required to buy the items from the auction house required to play the game at the hardest levels, which seems illustrative of some balance issues yet to be worked out. Also, the I am (we are) Diablo III thread on Reddit is live where game designers Wyatt Cheng, Andrew Chambers, and Jay Wilson all discuss the present and future of the game.

Some say "you should have different user/password for everything". I'm not sure I could manage having different user/password for everything.
Not only do I use different user/pass for everything, I use different email too. There's services out there that let you forward all your email to your main email. Its much easier if you use a password managing program, I recommend the excellent KeePass free open source program. There's paid alternatives too. Most of them offer options to copy/paste your passwords into your web browser, so you don't have to type whatever passwords you end up using.

If you use the same password/user for everything, basically whatever the weakest link is, such as a fan forum, if someone hacks it they can try your combo elsewhere (such as that one d3 hacker is doing, he's gotten 20k passwords doing that).

At the very least, if you hate all the above ideas, do something like a password that incorporates part of the site name. So something like:
Yes, its not terribly secure, but it would at least help prevent automated tools from trying same user/pass elsewhere, and its more secure than using exact same pass on every site.
